RE: Buddleia davidii a noxious weed???

Well, with all the talk about buddleias, that prompts my question:

How much of this plant, about eight feet high and five feet wide, is it
safe to prune off for the new year's growing season? I was thinking
1/3...anybody with thoughts on this?

This has been an interesting thread to follow. I have 2 buddleia
and<br>neither have spread at all- none. So I don't think i tis only
temperature<br>that makes the difference though- heck, mine never dies
back or even looses<br>its leaves. So, other environmental factors must
be present for it so<br>multiply. Certainly isn't a problem

Buddleia davidii a noxious weed???<br><br><br>I've been thinking about
the exchanges re Buddleia davidii a noxious<br>weed? Those of you
further north may not experience this problem but I<br>am seeing my
Buddleia spreading like privet. I am constantly pulling it<br>out or
repotting to give away (thus, perhaps, spreading the problem).
I<br>never purchased a Nandina but now have three thriving in my yard
and<br>have seen several in the wooded areas nearby. Some of my
neighbors have<br>planted it so it think it spread that way. So, I am
thinking that I<br>might be spreading Buddleia as those who planted
privet and Paulownia,<br>not realizing that they could become problems,
especially with these<br>short, mild winters we have been having. We are
also seeing a reduction<br>in songbirds and other wildlife...I know part
of it is due to urban<br>sprawl and cell towers but I wonder if lack of
native food isn't<br>contributing.<br><br><br>Bonnie Zone 6+
